Book cover
« on: December 27, 2015, 03:43:35 pm »

I'm new on the forum, this has probably been dealt with before, but I can't find any useful hints, so sorry if I repeat an old topic.

I'm in the process of making a 112 pages photobook. 21 x 21 cm (8.2677" x 8.2677"). The book is almost done, but I'm missing the book cover. The book will probably be printed on 200 g paper and the softcover on 300 g. As there are no automated cover functionality I need to make a dedicated cover file. It's easy to estimate everything but the thickness of the book. Any suggestion here?

Regards Hans

hi hans

some printshops provide an online spine width calculator.
otherwhise ask the printshop – they know their paper…
